During the pre-Unicode era, to type Vietnamese, we had to use these
locally-created fonts called the TCVN3. There are a very large number of old
Word documents existing using this font, and more are being created.

There is only one problem: For the letter "Æ°" (U+01B0 in Unicode), TCVN3 uses
the code 0xAD. This letter is displayed incorrectly in Writer (correctly in Calc
and Impress). Microsoft Word does not have this problem, so our users are
greatly annoyed by this and continuously asking why this "new Word" is wrong.

Although this is a small problem, this is making adoption of OOo in Vietnam more
difficult than it should be. I hope this is somehow featured in the next release.

I was not able to find a font containing the described character via the
interne... as a European guy I have my difficulties in reading Vietnamese sites -)

MRU->FME: The manual hyphen also uses char 0xAD. This must be regarded for such
font. Thus the attached fie could not be displayed correctly.
